I hesitated to post this story because it seems that people lose their damn minds when the issue of guns come up, but here goes. So this morning an ununiformed, off duty police officer dropping his kid off at Toledo Christian decides it is a good idea to walk into the school with his piece on his belt. Someone sees it, calls the police and before you know it, both Toledo Christian and OLPH are on lockdown. Here's what happened next:
Toledo police contacted the off-duty officer, who works for a different community, and he confirmed that he had been at Toledo Christian dropping off his own child at the time the call came in, Sergeant Heffernan said. Toledo officers suggested to him that in the future, he either conceal his weapon or wear his police uniform to avoid causing alarm, the sergeant said.
Umm, do they really not know that federal law prohibits anyone from carrying a gun into a school (besides on duty police)? Also, I gotta believe Toledo Christian prohibits the carrying of guns into the school. This guy caused two schools to lockdown and they just tell him to "conceal his weapon" next time? Idiots.
